     Live. Die. Repeat. Dying violent deaths over and over again totally blows. Loner Jeff Grobnagger has learned this the hard way. Every time he has a seizure, he dreams that a hooded man strangles and kills him. He runs. He fights. He hides. No matter what he does, his efforts end in a pretty bad case of death. But when someone tries to kill him in real life, he realized that what happens with the hooded man isn't just a dream. Who is the hooded man? And who tried to kill Grobnagger in real life? His quest for answers leads to a missing girl, cults obsessed with astral projection, and arcane puzzle sphere, an evil book, a buxom private detective named Louise, and a mustached man named Glenn that makes "the best martini you've ever tasted." Yep. If it weren't for all the horrific deaths, Jeff Grobnagger would be having the time of his life.

    One day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton's law of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.
    Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off with out her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian high's most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force-Liz didn't understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles towards the tree, she doesn't understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our action reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect?

Maybe One Day

    Zoe and her best friend, Olivia, have always had big plans for the future, none of which included Olivia getting sick. Still, Zoe is determined to put on a brave face and be positive for her friend. Even when she isn't sure what to say. Even when Olivia misses months of school. Even when Zoe starts falling for Calvin, Olivia's crush. The one thing that keeps Zoe moving forward is knowing that Olivia will beat this, and everything will go back to the way it was before. It has to. Because the alternative is too terrifying for her to even imagine. In this incandescent page turner, which follows the tradition of The Fault in Our Stars, Melissa Kantor artfully explores the idea that the worst thing to happen to you might not be something that is actually happening to you. Raw, Irreverent, and honest, Zoe's unforgettable voice and story will stay with you long after the last page is turned.
